    The game is getting more and more broken. When the Alpha Squad launched it had a few glaring issues but was basically great… but every patch they’ve put in has taken it further and further away from Planetside.

    I’m a big fan of the Sundy but as a pick-up-squad vehicle is just doesn’t work. I have never been in a random squad where anyone but the gunners got in that thing; everyone just grabs tanks… and then the squad gets completely split up and we have this retarded tank-spam issue at every major offence. The worst part is because everyone is cruising in their own vehicles no one talks anymore, because there is no need too.

    Back two patches ago pick-up-squads worked together because of the Galaxy. Dicking around picking up a tank or a Flash after capping the base? Bye bye random… Gal is half way across the map by now. People talked, because you needed too, and people worked together because you’d get left behind if you didn’t stick to the group like glue.

    Now we’re all ground war no one gives a crap if they get left behind. And the new land just made it worse, because the squad finder is so bad. Every squad I jumped in over the weekend half were in one land and half the other.

    I don’t have any issue with tank fights, absolutely not, but right now every fight is a tank fight zerg and that’s just not Planetside. Planetside was always, always about combined arms and squads but there is absolutely no reason to bother with either when you can solo roll out in a MBT.

    After a week on holiday I logged in for a little bit to check the update.

    Tank battles looked amazing, and I'm sure things will settle down as people work out decent tactics. There's still a load of basic exploration of the game mechanics going on as players, IMO.

    Played for the first time last night...played the orginal. Wow that was intense. Love the day/night cycle. Big balsey sound as everything goes tits up. Tried all the different character types and haven't decided on one yet.

    How do people co-ordinate in this? Seems it's one big push for a valley/settlement/base and I just followed everyone.

    Mr Wonderstuff is my name if you hadn't guessed.

    Think I've added everyone now.

    Seems the only way for Esamir to work is to lock players in there. I logged out on Indar last night, logged back in in the middle of an NC spawn and insta-killed by camping fuckwits (well known bug). Respawned at the warpgate and now I can't get back to Indar.

    Meanwhile on Es, TR and NC are owning and Vanu are barely holding a few hexes around the warpgate. Yaybalancing :(

    Is the NC's Bolt Driver still a one-shot kill if you pull off a headshot? I was playing last night and it seemed to be the case.

    Yeah. It's not as accurate at long ranges as the Vanu rifle (because the bullet is slower) but medium-to-long it's extremely accurate.

    Are those 3 all open? Last time I was on (a good few days ago) there was only 1 open.

    Although Eurydome lists as full, with a bit of persistent clicking on the play button I've always managed to get in after a couple of minutes.

    Would be cool to squad up with some EGers on this, could you add me to your friends list in-game. The name is PurpleReign. So, I'm Vanu, obviously. :D

    Had to change my name as I was NC - Wanderer is my name until such time I work out a way of using my other name (claims the name is in use even though I deleted it).

    Friend adds sent to Nasty/Wanderer/Purple. Join the steam group & vent etc.

    @Nasty - ooh, fair enough. Hop in to listen and just use the squad text chat til the new one arrives, should work fine :)

    If anyone got a beta key and has decided they don't want it, could they possibly throw it my way? I was on too late to claim unfortunately...

    Try creating a Station Account on the Planetside 2 website first, log in, then have a go at redeeming it.
